Package: nvidia-settings
Version: 280.13-1
Severity: normal

nvidia-settings 280.13-1 freezes as soon as I try to enable one of my two
external monitors via TwinView. I can 'kill -9' the process, but it either
freezes again or it won't even show up again.
Using nvidia-settings 195.36.24-1 in an otherwise 280.13-1-environment works.
I experienced this issue on various kernels since 2.6.32.
